Inverted nipples are common and can post cosmetic concerns for many women and even men. Most inverted nipples are congenital, meaning they are present at birth; or may be caused by a condition that was later developed on life such as a breast cancer, breast injury or breast feeding.
If one or both nipples suddenly invert, it is important to see a doctor and have a mammogram in order to address any underlying issues.
About the procedure
Depending on the degree of the nipple inversion, the procedure can be performed in office under local or within a hospital setting under general. Many women while undergoing nipple revision can have combined procedure, such as a breast reduction, breast lift, or breast augmentation.
Potential Risks and Complications
With any surgery there is always a risk of infection. There may be some redness, swelling and or discomfort. It’s important to follow pre and post-op instructions provided by your surgeon.
